Krug was established in 1843 by Joseph Krug and today Olivier Krug still supervises the houses production, tasting and blending; this represents six generations of stewardship. Krug is the only Champagne house that continues to produce their Champagnes in small oak casks, this is the essential component that defines it legendary intense bouquet and complex flavours. Krug’s superlative Champagne is from a single small walled vineyard, Le Mensil; it is the world’s leading Blanc de Blanc Champagne and exorbitantly expensive with an average bottle price of £600. Krug vintage is a blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay and in 2003 the assemblage was 46%, 29% and 25% respectively, which is the highest proportion of Pinot Meunier allowed in vintage Champagne.
